    How Does it Work?

    This API does not work alone, you will need to download one of the News Manager products below, it is these tools that will send a signal to be picked up by this API in your automated trading systems or cBots. The API is actually just a simple DLL or assembly file that you will reference in your existing C# project and use the code as shown below to check if a news release is about to happen.

    We provide an example project in the download to help you get started.
